Riverview is a suburb on the Lower North Shore of Sydney of Sydney, in the state of New South Wales, Australia. Riverview is located 9 kilometres north-west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the Municipality of Lane Cove. It is situated on the northern side of the Lane Cove River, at the head of Tambourine Bay; the foreshore is occupied by Tambourine Bay Park. Riverview is primarily a residential area.
There are several recreation areas throughout Riverview. Marjorie York Reserve, named after a longtime local resident, is a playground by the local shops and is very popular with families. Tambourine Bay Reserve is a large park situated at the end of Tambourine Bay Road, as well as Kallaroo Rd, and contains barbecue and picnic facilities, as well as a playground. It also offers splendid views over Tambourine Bay Road and is a hub for bushwalks to Longueville and around the bay. Burns Bay Reserve lies in West Riverview and is used for children’s soccer matches in the cooler months of the year. Like Tambourine Bay Reserve, it is complete with picnic and barbecue facilities, and also a playground. There is also a small recreation area at the end of the walkway leading from Flaumont Avenue, complete with benches and a swing set.
State Transit provides services between Riverview and Sydney CBD through the 253 (Freeway) and 254 (Pacific Hwy) services, departing roughly every quarter-hour in peak morning periods and every hour in off-peak periods. Tambourine Bay Road is the main thoroughfare through the area, and leads from Lane Cove’s shopping district. River Road West runs along Riverview’s northern border, and connects to Lane Cove West and Gladesville to the west and Longueville, North Sydney and Sydney CBD to the east.
Riverview takes its name from its location, which provides a ‘view’ of the Lane Cove ‘River’. St Ignatius’ College was built in 1880.
